Goodbye Message from Chuck and Emily

May 17, 2019


Ecclesiastes 3:1 reminds us there is a time and purpose for everything. Now is an exciting time to be a part of CCC. It is a time for us to follow where God leads us. It is a time to take the next step in our collective journey of growing as disciples and making disciples.

As part of that journey, Mike Mantooth, our lead pastor, will join our pastoral staff on May 21, 2019. We will introduce Pastor Mike at both services on May 26, 2019 and June 2, 2019. Please join us for worship those days. Please also make time to welcome and get to know Pastor Mike and his family over the next several weeks. Pastor Mike is a great addition to our pastoral staff. He brings spiritual gifts and skills that complement our existing pastoral staff. We are confident God will bless him as our lead pastor.

Additionally, this is a time for reflection. Pastor Chuck’s last day with us was May 12, 2019. Although we announced Pastor’s Chuck’s last day would be May 19, 2019, he used his remaining vacation days to leave earlier than expected. Pastor Chuck requested he leave quietly and without any public ceremony. We honored that request. Pastor Chuck recorded a video sharing his thoughts before he left. We will show the video in both services on June 2, 2019. Please take the next several weeks to a write a note of appreciation or thanks to Pastor Chuck. Please drop off or email those notes to the church office. We will collect them and send them to Pastor Chuck later this summer.

God tells us in Jeremiah He has a plan and purpose for us. Please join us in being a part of His plan for CCC. God will lead us as we move on to our next chapter. As we always have, we will faithfully follow him.
